The workshop provides both didactic and experiential exercises to facilitate deeper integration of knowledge.

Upon completion, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the human social engagement/ communication system and its relevance and significance for TIP
  • Assess how well therapeutic models and/or interventions align with the principles of TIP
  • Describe the window of tolerance and recognize the signs associated with states of hyper- and hypo-arousal

  • Create safety for clients
